  1. Hello, it's me again. I'm still no fan of Lipos. All of my Cars are in a wooden House, in winter the Temperatures get under 0°C. So i'm afraid to ruin either the Batteries or my House through fire. Lot of People use 15 Turn HPI Firebolts. Aren't they Timed? What ESC do i need to run them? (Quickrun 860?) My local Shopguy tells me that the Superstock Tamiya ones not only are timed (that wouldn't be a Problem), but they are "forward" motors because of the direction of the Brushes..... So the superstocks aren't good at running in Reverse. Do the RC4wd 20T Motors work in both directions? Would they give me an advantage over silvercans if i still use Stickpacks?
  2. Fudge it, i've just ordered 120mm red alluminum shoks. I think they will work. Now i just need a Servoreverser for my Y Harness. And maybe 2 stronger brushed Motors.
  3. Hello, i'm getting the Topic back up to ask if anyone knows longer Eyelets for the Traxxas Big Bore Shocks. The Oilchamber and the unused Positve Travel is pleny enough when they're built into the Clodbuster. So i need more negative Travel for my Clod to get more Sag. I want to use the original suspension of the Super Clodbuster. I already installed Alluminum anti Roll bracets and an alluminum Chassis bracet. Also i installed 2 Servomounts on each axle to give the Suspension more Room. (The original Steering limits the Suspension quite a bit) Ps: Where can i find the cc01 suspension eyelets?
  4. Thanks for your Responses, this is still one of the best Webforums i know Since i never ridden a a Racetrack, i dont know how many Turns, Corners, Straights and Crossings i should Put. Does anyone have Sggestions for a Layout that brings some fun? I don`t want to turn all the Grass into Track and i want to Decorate the Track. Is there any Suggestion of a nice Layout? I think that all of my Cas burst to topspeed on a Distance from 5 to 6 meters...
  5. PS: Is ist even Possible to Build a nice Track on that narrow Space? I would be happy if i don`t have to mow the "Lawn" that often in the Future.
  6. Hello, inspired by that Topic: https://www.tamiyaclub.com/forum/index.php?/topic/86979-my-midlife-crisis-backyard-rc-playground/&ct=1569174849 i want to build my own simple Racetrack for my Tamiyagarage. Since i have no idea how to plan a Track by myself, i want to ask here for Help with the Layout. I never was near i Racetrack, so i don`t know anything about a good layout. My demands for a Racetrack are simple: 1.) It have to look Pretty (Flowers Stones, Decoration ect. will come, but that part could be managed by myself) That means that not all of the Grass should be covered with Track, ther should be enough Space for Grass, Lavender, Conifeers and stuff like that. 2.) It has to be an allroundtrack for my simple RC`s (Grashopper, Hornet, Lunchbox, Blazing Star, Dirt Thrasher, DT-02, TL-01 Lancia Delta Integrale, Clodbuster, ect) So it has to be flat. hmmm.... I mean, it has to be "Scale" so no big Jumps and Stuff like that (a 1 m high ramp scales down to 10 cm). Shure it is an offroadtrack but it is for simple RC Cars from the past. I don`t own any Clubracer... I can build portable Jumpramps anytime. 3.) I Need help with the Layout to make a nice Tarck. Here are some Pictures of the Garden and a Picture of the Parkinglot. (The Parkinglod could be used for a Tarmacadaptation for a Rallytrack)
  7. Thank you very much. That is some helpful Information there.
  8. What Parts (Partnumbers) do you need to Build that Diff? I'm very interested in that Fix. I have 3 King Cab Diffs here an i absolutely hat that Diff because all of them are damaged in some Way. (Damaged Shims, melted Plastic, Broken screws) I`ve successfully rebuild only one of them with new Shims and Ball Diffgrease and are not tooo confident that i will last very long, even with the Silvercan. I love and hate the King Cab. I love the look of that truck and how it handles. But i hate the Diff and i`m not skilled enough to paint the Body that is laying around..... I wish that @TruckNorris would be my Neighbour, so he could help me with that Shell and the Paintwork
  9. Yeah, i know, but i thougt that topic is the best fitting topic for my Question. In the Forums i normally use it is rude to start a new topic if there is an existing or fitting thread.... If it common to start a new thread even a similar thread exists i want to apologize and i will read the "Forumrules/Terms of Use" for a better behavior in the future.
  10. Hello, i know that i`m pesky but im turnin Insane. I run a Wild dagger with the Quicrun dual ESC and 2 "Super Stock BZ Motors" on zero Timing. Today i wanted to set one to positive Timing and the otherone to negative Timing. Anyhow the Truck ran slower forwards than backwards.... So i changed the polarity on the Motorcables (and reversed the channel on the Transmitter), switched the Cables from the ESC from one Motor to the other, but nothing helped. The Truck was slower in the forward direction. So i tryed to set positive Timing on the Front Motor and negative Timing on the back Motor.... .....aaaand the Truck is faster forwards and relativly slow backwards. But that wrong in my opinion. The Back Motor should run forwards an the front Motor should run backwards in my belief. So here is my Setup: Wild Dagger Quicrun 860 Dual ESC 2 x Super Stock BZ Motors Yellow ESC Cable to Red Motorcable Blue ESC Cable to Black Motorcable
  11. Ok, i see, i will have to buy a RPM-Meter to check the Motors i buy..... That also would be very nice to check all of my Silvercans that are lying around, because i have the feeling that they all have different Power. Some have Yellow and Green Cables, some have Black and Red Cables, some are polished, some are not.... Also i have some "Stock tuned 27T Motors" with changable Brushes.
  12. Hello, i found some "tuning Motors" at the Conrad Store. The Employee told me that the Motors run at the same speed in both directions, but he also mentioned that he did not know what Timing is, he never heared about Timing....... ....so i did not rely on his Purchasespeech. That are the 23T Motors i found: https://www.conrad.at/de/automodell-brushed-elektromotor-modelcraft-tuning-18924-umin-windungen-turns-23-236263.html Do any of you kno if they are Timed? I inspectet the Motors an you can not modyfy the Timing. Either is is timed or not, but you can not adjust the Timing. Edit: The RPM is similar to the Sport tuned Motors...
  13. I understand what Timing is, also what the Turns mean. I´m sorry if i missunderstood anything you wrote of if i could not explain what i was thinking. It could be a Languageproblem, because my english is very bad and that tends to Errors in the communication. Also, i do not know a lot of RC Parts - so my Questions could be more than below the average Questionqualitys in this Forum. So, sorry if i was rude, dumb or anything like that. That was the Answer that i was in search of. I never had opened a Motor, so i do not knof how the brushes look like. Yeah, that is exactly that i was told. The Sport Tuned Motors (nowdays) are 27T advanced Motors. If there were 23T Sport Tuned Motors in the past is not clear. Even if Tamiya USA Claims that the Sport Tuned Motors are 23T, but thats wrong, they are 27T.
  14. Thanks for that Info about the 550 Motos. So that the Brushes have a dedicated Direction isn`t true? The Guy in the Hbbyshop told me that there are "Forwardmotos" and "Backwardmotors" because of the Design of the Brushes and that Timing only controles the "Punch" of the Motors. And that a Zero timed Motor doesn`t run in the same Speed in both directions (because it still is a Forward designed Motor....). He Said that brushless Motors can be reversed if you solder the Cables or do something with the Programchip or Sensor or some Stuff like that.... ....i didn`t listen because i want to stay brushed. So anyway, i searched for the Specs of the 20T RC4WD Motor. My expierience tells me that the Turns do not say a lot about Tourque or RPMs. The Sporttuned 27T Tamiya Motor is a lot faster then the cheapo 17T Motor from Absima. So here are the Specs that i Found: RC4WD 20T: At No Load RPM @ 7.2V : 20000 +10% , 2Amp Current Rated load RPM @ 7.2V : 18400 +10%, 7.92Amp Current Didn`find anything about the Tourque, but it is a Crawler Motor so the Tourque would be very High... Super Stock BZ 23T: R.P.M. at best efficiency: 26,500rpm (7.2V) Torque at best efficiency: 500g-cm (7.2V) Sport Tuned 27T: R.P.M. at best efficiency: 18.300 rpm (7.2V) Torque at best efficiency: 350g-cm (7.2V) So it seems that the Tamiya Motors provide a lot more Power than most of the Motors from other Manufactrures. So i think the 20 Turn RC4WD Motors are not hotter than the Super Stock 23T Motors. But otherwise, i do not have the knowledge of or expierience like you. Maybe i`ll test These 20 Turn Motors.
  15. I´ve wondered who of the Tamiyaclub is into Skateboarding? I´m not talanted in any Way, but i have grew up with Skateboarding and so i do it for the last 25 Years. I love to cruise on my Skateboards und carve Around. And all of my friends skate, they do the flippedy`do`tricks and stuff like that, but for any reason i have the biggest collection of Skatebords in my Friendshipcircle, even if i only use my Skateboards to get from A to B. As a Start i leave a short Video that did Pop of in my Youtouberecomendations and that combines Cars with Skateboarding:
